GAINcast Episode 136: The anatomy of agility part 2 (with Frans Bosch and John Pryor)

On last week’s GAINcast we started a discussion on agility with Frans Bosch and John Pryor, looking at transfer, traditional strength training, and common misconceptions of their work.Bosch and Pryor have formed a strong partnership that has helped redefine strength and conditioning by bringing together the science of coaching and art of coaching. On this week’s GAINcast we continue the conversation to look at the first step in implementing Bosch’s ideas, redefining general training, connecting movements, and more.
